The young Luke Skywalker at the end of season 2 "The Mandalorian" was one of the biggest "Star Wars" surprises ever. Since December 2020, fans have been wondering how the scene was technically implemented - from today the answer will be given in a documentary.
Keeping secrets is what they are really good at in the production of “The Mandalorian”. Some things leaked out in advance, but the two biggest surprises were successfully protected: In the first season, Mando has to take care of Grogu, a baby who belongs to the species of Yoda - and the little rascal becomes a boy at the end of the second season Luke Skywalker picked up, although his actor Mark Hamill is now 69 years old.
The new episode of the documentary series "Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian", which is now available on Disney +, is about the shooting of Luke's surprise appearance. This closes a gap: in the making-of, published shortly after the second season of “The Mandalorian”, the Luke scene is completely ignored.
TRICKS IN A TWO SENSE
The author of these lines will never forget how he saw the arrival of the cloaked figure, finally revealed as Luke, for the first time. The attraction of this scene also lies in not being sure that Luke Skywalker is really chopping through the battle droids to save Mando, Grogu & Co. To keep this secret until the episode was broadcast, even the actors on the set were apparently deceived: Katee Sackhoff, the actress of the Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze, saw only a man with markings on his face instead of Mark Hamill, for that digital, young face of Luke.
But as has since been confirmed, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker on a "The Mandalorian" set. In the new episode "Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian" we will definitely get to see how exactly the whole trickery went off.
THE 3rd SEASON "MANDALORIAN"
The shooting of the third season “The Mandalorian” will soon begin, in which Din Djarin will be left to his own devices after his heartbreaking farewell to Grogu. The new season could start on Disney + towards the end of 2022 - and thus continue a marathon of the new “Star Wars” series. It starts at the end of 2021 with the spin-off "The Book Of Boba Fett", followed by "Andor" about the eponymous "Rogue One" rebels and "Obi-Wan Kenobi" with Ewan McGregor and Hayden "Anakin" Christensen.
